Christie Busted: Port Authority Official Says NJ Governor Lied About Lane Closings, "Has Evidence To Prove It"

Tyler Durden's picture


The sharks are circling Chris Christie who just sprung a bloody leak (either that or the population must really need to be distracted from a horrible January for stocks and what may be coming next). Moments ago the NYT reported that the former Port Authority official who personally oversaw the lane closings on the George Washington Bridge "said that the governor knew about the lane closings when they were happening, and that he had the evidence to prove it." Of course, if such evidence exists, Christie can call it a career after claiming the opposite on numerous occasions in the past month. Of course, one wonders whether Obama would have been impeached by now had the "independent and impartial media" hounded him with the same fervor for his numerous transgressions and repeated lies to the American public. Alas, we will never know the answer.

From the NYT:

In a letter released by his lawyer, the official, David Wildstein, a high school friend of Mr. Christie’s who was appointed with the governor’s blessing at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls the bridge, described the order to close the lanes as “the Christie administration’s order” and said “evidence exists as well tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the governor stated publicly in a two-hour press conference” three weeks ago.


“Mr. Wildstein contests the accuracy of various statements that the governor made about him and he can prove the inaccuracy of some,” the letter added.


The letter marked the first signal that Mr. Christie may have been aware of the closings, something he repeatedly denied during a two-hour press conference earlier this month.

One tangential observation is that if the level of circuses, if not so much bread, is picking up to such extensive levels, and the US public is in such dire need of distraction from their everyday lives, then truly something big is about to hit... or this is simply the traditional pre-election circus act designed to set the stage for the grotesque farce that are the midterm elections.

Suspect Wildstein doesn't have career-ending goods on CC. But even without them, this may be a political wound that will not heal.

He better have the evidence, otherwise it gives Christie the chance to say prove it or STFU.  If nothing is produced, this could be a win for Christie.

yawn. more red/blue circus to suck the masses in.   these politicians are never going to fix the real problems.  they are owned.   voting is a farce, best not to participate.  step back, let it all collapse.

huh, so what if he knew about the closings....i did, too. the question is if he ORDERED them or if he was aware the lanes were closed due to his subordinates' orders. 


he should just say "it was the video" and be done with it.

Yeah. O'bomb-a sure followed through on his campaign promises. Especially the ones about transparency, and civil liberties, and ending the "Patriot" Act, and closing Gitmo, ending bailouts, etc. etc... Not to mention the way the balanced, unbiased media have really held his feet to the fire.  Fuuuuuuuuuck.

He did not "lie".  If you say something over and over enough times it is not a lie.  Just ask Barack, Bill, & Hiliary if you don't believe me.

How is this even mildly news when we still haven't found out the following about our alleged President.

1)Who forged his birth certificate?

2)Why is Obama using multiple SS#'s including that of a dead man?

3)Who paid for Obama's college costs (any three letter agencies like CIA, CFR etc involved)?

4)Why are his trasnscripts sealed?

5)Who is his real father (compare pictures of Frank Davis (his real father, US communist party bigwig and pornoking) with him at the same age and draw your own conclusions.

6)How did he get the nickname "bathhouse BarrY" and why are so many of his previousl gay friends suffering the fate of Vince Foster?

So, Christie may have caused a traffic tie up?  His biggest problem is his appetite and being too fat.

I know what you are talking about, but nobody will touch that with a 10 foot pole.  Everytime it's brought up the messenger either disappears or has a change in stance, either way they won't allow a sitting president (real or not) to be taken down.  Also it goes to show you the power, because is true this is the type of blackmail material that people use to control others.  Also for them going after Christie (who I believe did all of this), tells me that something major is coming down the pipe and they are running scared.

Saying that they were "just following orders" didn't work for the Nazis at Neuremburg, why does it work for them in New Jersey?  Where was that miserble fuck "whistleblower" on the day the sheeple were being punished?


Now that I look back, I realize that a life predicated on being obedient and taking orders is a very comfortable life indeed. Living in such a way reduces to a minimum one's need to think.

I suspect he is not the man they want in a presidential race in a couple of years. Otherwise no one is accountable in politics (and thus your point is correct).

America is probably so disgusted with Obama that they are ready for a right black eye to replace their left black eye. America is also too fat/stupid/complacent to leave the beater BFs...

Yeah, I'm curious as to why Christie is being sacked by TPTB at this moment.  What did he do to upset The Establishment?  I mean, these "chosen" pols don't get sacked like this unless they said something anti-semitic.

It's all so tragically funny. The sheeple will just be "horrified, horrified I'm telling you," but will go on completely ignoring the blatant and open lies of all the rest. Just baffling.
